Never used or seen light with original boxes and manuals, purchased from a guy who because of family issues never took it out of the box - I took it out to mount accessories and take pictures. Complete hobby telescope system set up for remote control and astrophotography. Scope is the Nexstar GPS 8, US built before China bought out Celestron. This scope is considered one of the best Celestrons ever made with dual fork arms and built like a tank. Heavy Duty Tripod.

Comes with updated controller (V4) for remote control and has had firmware upgrade to address GPS date rollover issue. Has WiFi module to control scope remotely using SkySafari on a tablet, smartphone, or desktop. Has a RasPi3 running Linux for remote control as well as astrophotography and camera apps. Power pack for 'off grid' use, large Pelican Case for Scope transport, small Pelican Case for optics/camera.

I built this system as a project, more for the fun of putting it together rather than using it and it's designed for someone just getting into astronomy with not only the basics but some extras like the camera that you can grow into. System includes many accessoasPi3 and WiFi transmitter for remote control, CCD Color Camera, power supply, battery pack, solar filter, eyepieces, etc) - please contact me for complete list.

$2150 value, firm cash price, local pickup, no trades, listed until sold. Serious inquiries only. Selling for what I paid for scope and accessories (which are all new).
